Accelerated Program (Dual - Degree: 4+1) - Sociology (BA) and Urban Education (M.Ed.)

Sociology (BA) and Urban Education (M.Ed.)

This 4+1 Accelerated Dual-Degree Program provides an opportunity for undergraduate students in Sociology to complete their Undergraduate Degree in Sociology AND a Master’s in Education (M.Ed.) in Urban Education all within 5 years. The M.Ed. in Urban Education provides students with an understanding of the social context of urban schools, historical and contemporary school reform efforts, and the relationship between broader social, political, and economic issues and the experiences of students and communities.


These four graduate courses are to be completed by the end of your senior year and will count towards both your undergraduate and graduate degree program requirements:  
  • URBE 5401: Policy and Practice in Urban Education (3 credits)
  • URBE 5611: Reforming City Schools (3 credits)
  • URBE 5565: Origins of Urban Education (3 credits)
  • Plus One Elective (3 credits): Courses taken must be relevant to the student's choice of specialization: Educational Policy Studies, Foundations in Urban Education, School-Community Partnerships, and Teaching in Urban Schools.
The graduate courses will be coded as undergraduate courses on your undergraduate transcript and undergraduate tuition will be applied. After you matriculate into the 4+1 Graduate program, the graduate level indicator will be added to these courses.
